If you need a change of pace from primary fruit wines, Olga💥 smacks you in the nose w/ bell pepper, basil, and just ripe cherries. So silky too.

Savory character, with earthy, herbal and bell pepper notes, medium bodied. Suspect it will evolve and improve with time.

2014 is compact, even and symmetrical vintage, worked a miracle in Burgundy but not in Loire. Feels contained and steady so it lacks the nervous tension.

Took a while to open up. A good example for a blind but I wasn’t blown away. Solid chinon.

Lovely, delicate, green, woodsy, herbaceous, red fruit, great persistence. I know it’s infanticide, but I wanted it. So there.

Needs to breathe for an hour but patience is well rewarded. Love the raspberry/vegetable vibe.
